Wishlist Wednesday #31 – Barbara Rihl bag

My recent trip saw me spending most of my time in the south of France, but my sister and I fit in a whirwind 23-hour layover in Paris. This left me with only a few hours of shopping time, but I managed to do significant damage nonetheless.

In my shopping frenzy, I found myself in the Marais, and came face to face with a store window with the most whimsical, adorable bags I had ever seen. Fortunately for my already abused credit card, the store had closed for the day, and I was leaving the next morning before it opened. Doesn’t mean that I am not now pining for a Barbara Rihl bag.

My Surratt Beauty Experience at Barneys

Affilier Acheté

Surratt Beauty It’s been ages and ages and ages since I wrote about my desire to try out Troy Surratt’s beauty line, but shortly before I went away, the day finally came for me to head to Barneys and experience the works. I had tried a couple of the products in the line here and there, but I really wanted to immerse myself in the full Surratt Beauty experience. And oh, did I ever.

*This entry has been prescheduled to post while I am out of the country, so if you comment and I don’t reply right away, that’s why.*

This week’s question again comes from my friend Andrea, and seems fitting since I am currently traveling.

What was your best or most memorable shopping experience while traveling?

There are SO many to pick from, for me! But last year around this time when I was in Spain, I scored my Guerlain Rouge G de Guerlain in Garçonne for about €23 at a random tax-free store on the street in Malaga!! (It retails for $49.50 at home.) 😀

I’m just a bit obsessed with stripes. I’m not sure that you knew that about me. Just in case you’re not familiar…

DSC_1653 With flash 20131001_160514_1-2 I have one or two Marinière, or Breton stripe, shirts (like so [Petit Bateau is classic, obvi], but lately I have been hankering for a Breton stripe dress.

(The history of the Marinière is really interesting, if you’re a nerd like me. It was originally the uniform of the French navy [hence the “Marinière”], who hailed from Brittany [hence the “Breton stripe”. If you want to read more, I loved this article.)

Rouge Bunny Rouge is one of those under-the-radar brands that, when first reading the name on other blogs, I’d go, “What’s that brand called?! What IS that?!” But from everything I saw, I knew I needed to have some of it in my life. And I was right.

Wishlist Wednesday #28 – Vintage Scarf

My recent obsession is a vintage scarf. Okay, to be honest, I have been wanting one for a while now, but it’s suddenly resurfaced in urgency. The summer is coming up, and I’m trying to figure out a way to keep my hair neat when the wind blows it around. Because of the curls, I can’t pull it back or put it up without ruining it.

Then I started thinking about all the old Hollywood stars who wore scarves and how glamorous it looked.
